Sometimes it is the simple stuff in life that brings me great pleasure. Other times it is an $1800 (that's the "sale" price on Amazon) book by the name of Una Grande Storia Italiana. Valentino Garavani. This fashion book is a must for those who have the money and love the style.

The book oozes luxury, much like like the Valentino name. This luxurious limited-edition publication renders homage to Valentino's illustrious career via a copious selection of images from his archives, including drawings, magazine shoots, advertisements, portraits of Valentino, and documentary photographs; presented chronologically, the visual material is accompanied by a vast array of newspaper and magazine articles about Valentino throughout the years.

The price tag might be a little much for many, but for the select few this is one book I can guarantee won't be just laying to be used as a coaster on the coffee table.

If fashion is your everything you understand that this book, and others like it, is like a "little black dress" - and will always be in style.
